Clean standup comic, PG-13 content. Perform semi regularly at the Loony Bin in Tulsa, Ok. Most recently opened for a show at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.
I bring something different with each show, subtlety so that often the audience draws their conclusion as the punchline's being delivered; sight gags, plays on words and voice impersonations from The Princess Bride, to Hank Hill and even Andrew Dice Clay. I have even created a YouTube star among my friends: Bernie Shallcross, a redneck offering his take on Oklahoma peculiarities.
He was great he was patient since the wedding started late pushing everything back, funny even gave my newly wed husband a shirt and cd it was fun
Response from Comedian Matthew Spruill:
Great couple, I wish you the best! Thank you so much for having me entertain your wedding!

Gig Length: 5 - 45 minutes
What to Expect
Expect to laugh and enjoy someone poking fun at how uptight people in general are. My comedy will provoke thoughts, and while provocative and risque topics may be implied and covered, I absolutely refuse to be sexually inappropriate. Well placed words and comedic timing are the essence of true comedy, and that's what can be expected from a performance of mine.
Born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, moved to Tulsa Oklahoma when I was 23 to pursue law school. Graduated with a Juris Dctorate from the University of Tulsa College of Law. Always had a passion to entertain groups of people, which I do with every class I teach through the State of Oklahoma. I teach now to read people and their body language as well as how to negotiate tactfully with others. In almost every evaluation of my classes, people have said that I should be a comedian and that they'd pay to watch me perform. My wife eventually said, "either get up on stage or stop talking about it!" I did, and the rest is history.
My routines usually include discussions about my wife, me having to drive her convertible beetle and still look manly, marrying a diva, as well as things my son has said and the gender/age gap between him and my step daughter. Intermittently, I'll offer up voice impersonations and will try to stay fresh on events and my area where I'm performing so I can offer some local flavor to my audience. People don't just want to listen, they want to be entertained. I'm a comedian, but I will entertain you.
